What people are saying about Boston Scientific
Salaries in STEM
4 months ago
At Boston Scientific the Eng I salary mid point is around 83K, Eng II is 100K exactly, and Senior is around 118K. Managers will put you usually in the 85% to 99% mid point bracket. I have a lot of experience and I got a 99.5% mid point rate. I don't even know why they have a low, mid, and high points if they never go over the mid

Great benefits and workplace culture. Many opportunities to take classes and learn outside of your day to day work. Aggressively buying companies to extend their reach.
Lower than competition pay scale results in losing good engineers.

My time there started out well as I was left to be able to do my work as I saw was best, which I did just fine doing. I received very reasonable pay and benefits. I did learn alot and the position help improve my abilities and self esteem.
As the company expanded into my area they grew much more Nit Picky and controlling about how I do my job. It was very upsetting and stressful. The people in my office were not overly pleasant to be around either. I was forced to come into the office half time after being 100% productive and efficient being exclusively from home for over 2 years due to Covid. Supervisor was reasonable, but hands were tied on many things. I also struggled to be able to access my find pay stub, something that should be automatically mailed with any pay day that takes place after my last day on the job.

Since joining Boston Scientific over two years ago as a data scientist, I've been continually pleasantly surprised by the culture: at every turn my ideas are heard; innovation is encouraged, appreciated, and supported; employees can bring their full selves; and the sense and presence of community is real. I'm truly excited for this company's future, and for my career at Boston Scientific.
Boston Scientific is large company, and change can be slow. In addition, this size and the general structure that has resulted from growth through acquisitions means that silos can abound. It takes a willingness to reach out to others, effort to spread ideas, and engagement of the rich communities of practice and employee resource groups to drive important change. Fortunately, the company culture is such that when you do this, you will be heard, and you will be empowered to continue.1

Boston treats you so well, really promotes internally and wants you to succeed.
You are the primary driver of any and all success- you need to problem solve and everything is up to you.

The timeliness were reasonable and there were plenty of resources available to make projects go smoothly for an intern/co-op who might need a little more help. The people who work here are kind and understanding. You basically get treated like an entry level engineer, which means you will be given actual work that impacts the company and helps the team you are assigned to instead of being given busy work for 6 months
You might get thrown into the deep end a bit, which can be intimidating and paralyzing if you've been more academic and less hands-on with your learning experience before starting here, but I guess that goes for most first internships/jobs. The pay is not very good ($27/hr) considering they expect you to do the work of an entry level engineer as an intern/co-op.

Future Company revenue projection is good, Direct Management is good. Run like a big company with typical pros related to scale. Numerous Acquisitions all ,restructured out, as is norm.
Management is not allowed to provide verbal references to potential employers of x-employees. Many internal roles but do not fill with available good internal candidates. Does not respect christian religious beliefs of employees . Run like a big company with bureaucratic cons related to it.
